Barcelona closely follows Eric García’s progress in Manchester City and several sources have revealed to ESPN that the Catalan club asked about the situation of the young Spanish defender to assess his possible return to Camp Nou in the near future.

Eric, now 19, was considered one of the Catalan club’s great gems, but in the summer of 2017, he decided to leave his ‘home’ to sign a contract with Manchester City until 2022.

The Catalan team is looking for a defender who could become Gerard Piqué’s replacement. Last summer, they unsuccessfully tried to sign Mattihjs de Ligt, who ended up at Juventus, and believe that young Eric could also play that role well.
